Kaheksa Jalga (“eight legs”) is like a sailor in a forest
It is not usual for a tiny restaurant in a country manor to have such a name. To avoid people thinking that the name refers to the legs of a chair for example, a chandelier in the shape of an octopus has been hung from the ceiling of the restaurant.
The locals know that the manor belonged to the once explorer Kotzebue and that it has been excitingly and eclectically renovated, inspired by his travels and adventures.
The head chef of the restaurant is also a man who has prepared food all over the world. The menu of Kaheksa Jalga is perhaps the shortest one in Estonia but it offers flavours befitting its surroundings all too well. If it still includes the baby octopus served with cucumber and avocado, be sure to try it and you will see for yourself what we are talking about.
